Advances in CPAP Machine Design Provide Smaller, Quieter, Sleeker Machines

If you used a continuous positive airway pressure device (CPAP) to treat your obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) for a while, you know that the battle for smaller and quieter cars raged for years. Today the battle was won. There will no longer be a CPAP machine louder than the snoring of the person who uses it. Also, today’s machines are more elegant and much smaller than previous models, providing advanced functions to help all patients with OCA better cope with compliance. If you have not seen a CPAP machine today, you do not have any great features that can make your CPAP more comfortable.

In the last few years, manufacturers of CPAP machines such as Philips Respironics, ResMed, DeVilbiss Healthcare and Fisher & Paykel Healthcare have made great strides in the production of CPAP machines that are not only technically more efficient with functions such as exhalation, data regeneration, automatic titration , and with heated humidification, but also made an attempt to make CPAP machines less like obsessive medical devices and more like household products, such as clock radios. Efforts made by manufacturers help increase patient acceptance with CPAP therapy and, therefore, improve patient compliance.

Noiseless. This is the best word for describing any large CPAP machine developed last year to 18 months. DeVilbiss Healthcare IntelliPAP has a published noise level of 26 dBA. If you think that the whisper in the library will be recorded at about 30 dB, you can imagine how quiet this machine is from DeVilbiss. Can your existing CPAP machine make this statement? Such new machines from Respironics and ResMed, of course, can claim the same honor in silence. These new cars are no different from the previous summer freight trains.

Functions such as expiratory relief and automatic titration have helped increase patient acceptance with CPAP. The exhalation relief allows the patient to exhale against automatically reduced pressure. The CPAP machine recognizes the end of the inspiratory cycle and can reduce the pressure for exhalation to 3 cm H20. Exhalation is offered by most major manufacturers and can be labeled in C-FLEX (Respironics), A-FLEX (Respironics), SmartFlex (DeVilbiss) or EPR (ResMed). Automatic titration machines, or Auto CPAP or APAP, have recently become more popular in the CPAP therapy industry. Titration can be automatically adjusted by the machine to obtain more pressure, when necessary or less, when applicable. Some patients find that constant pressure is not always the best therapy. Factors such as alcohol consumption, sleeping position or prescribed medications can affect how CPAP titration is performed. Auto CPAP can make adjustments to the airflow as needed and provide you with the therapy necessary for any night.

Fisher & Paykel Icon CPAP Machine The newest machine on the market – from Fisher & Paykel Healthcare from New Zealand. The new Icon Premo is formed in contrast to any previous car up to it with an area of ​​only 6’5″ and includes a front digital clock on the display that makes the entire machine look no more than a simple alarm clock on your nightstand. by adding AlarmTunes, which allows you to play MP3 files directly from your CPAP machine to start the morning.However, the features of the device are far from simple.Fisher & Paykel is known for progress in the field of humidification, including ThermoSmart ThermoSmart Technology with a unique heated breathing tube. It provides higher individual humidity levels that are maintained at night, regardless of the change in ambient temperature. These higher humidity levels help maintain normal airway conditions without the side effect of condensation or rain as it is affectionately termed CPAP patients.The Icicle humidifier is built into the device without the need for two separate devices y is longer.A new icon is certainly a machine for viewing in the industry.
